Speedo LZR RACER swimsuit

A series of world records in swimming are being broken by athletes wearing Speedo LZR RACER swimsuits. Let's see some informative videos.

Oh and check the official website at

Speedo launches the world's fastest swim suit which has been tested at NASA to prove it's superiority in the pool.

The LZR ("Laser") RACER suit, tested in wind tunnels used by NASA to test the aerodynamic qualities of space shuttles, makes elite swimmers 5% more efficient in their oxygen intake so it is 'easier' for them to swim faster for longer .

Test performances have led experts to believe the new suit will help swimmers shave valuable seconds off their times, which athletes are confident will result in more medals being won and more world records being broken by Speedo swimmers this year.

The suit works by reducing the friction (or 'drag') that slows a swimmer down. Since the properties of water can not be changed, the goal is to make the swimmer's body as smooth and streamlined as possible.

Developed over the past three years, the LZR RACER is made from an ultra light-weight fabric that actually repels water. It is ultrasonically welded together to form the world's first fully bonded suit, cutting down friction even further.

By scanning more than 400 elite athletes including Michael Phelps (US) and Grant Hackett (Aus), the R&D team were able to place laser-cut ultra low-friction 'panels' specifically on those areas, which, along with the suit's corset-like compression, makes each individual swimmer as hydrodynamic as they can be.

This means that each swimmer is held in the optimum shape and position to cut through the water in the most effective way, therefore saving them valuable energy which they can then use to swim faster!

In tests the new suit reduced passive drag (the position a swimmer is in following a dive or a turn) by 10% compared to the Speedo suit worn in Athens in 2004. It also reduced skin friction or 'surface drag' (i.e. when the swimmer is on top of the water), by a massive 24% compared to the Speedo FASTSKIN (2000) and 38% more than standard Lycra.

The results led World Record holder, Libby Lenton (Aus), to describe the experience as being "like swimming down hill"!

Legend of Zelda - April Fool's trailer by IGN

Legend of Zelda (April Fools' Day) Movie Trailer Premiere

April 1, 2008 - [EDITOR'S NOTE: April 2, 2008 - 12:01 a.m. PST. Yup, you guessed it. The Legend of Zelda trailer featured here is part of an elaborate April Fool's Day prank. What follows is our original story announcing the trailer to the (in some cases) unsuspecting public.

Also: we've added a making-of video for the most curious of fans.]

Few videogame properties hold the cachet of The Legend of Zelda. As a film project, it's on the scale of Lord of the Rings. But no one has tackled a live-action adaptation of the storied franchise… until today. Production Company Rainfall Films has asked IGN to premiere the very first footage from their live-action Zelda film — a very literal adaptation of the magical epic — and, of course, we said, "Yes!"

Much like the indie gem Cloverfield, this project has been shrouded in secrecy and details kept close to the vest. What we do know is that the film is being written and directed by newcomer Sam Balcomb. Going the route of Star Wars: Episode IV, this production decided to cast all unknowns in the iconic roles. Link is played by JR Killigrew, Camille C. Brown portrays a very Elven Princess Zelda, and Gregory Lee Kenyon stars as Ganondorf. You may, however, recognize Camden Toy (see TV's Buffy and Angel) in the supporting role as Sahasrahla.

The Incredible Hulk (2008) - Edward Norton

Here's the promising trailer for The Incredible Hulk (2008).
Starring Edward Norton as David Bruce Banner, Liv Tyler as Betty Ross and Tim Ross as Emil Blonsky (aka the Abomination). You can also see Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark/Iron-Man, Ty Burrell as Dr Samson and more!

PS Thank God they thought to give Hulk one more chance after the disappointing Hulk movie back in 2003. I really think that Edward Norton is the right man. Keep in mind that the movie script has been written by Edward Norton himself and Zan Penn.
